My first Kolsch. Faint fruity aroma. Nice creamy white head, small. A spicey, faintly hop flavor. Nice acidity. Not much flavor, but very refreshing. Could drink this like Gatorade.

Had this on tap at Crescent Moon in Omaha.
Pale gold color with almost no head. Smell is mildly citrus and sweetwith just a light hoppiness. Flavor of malt, hop, lemon and spices. Overall taste was very mild. Was very easy to drink, but not something I’ll seek out again.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Mild pear-like fruitiness with some light herbal hops in the nose. Hazy golden-yellow with decent white head that diminishes to cover. Very lightly fruity yeast characteristics over the soft malty flavour with some citrus-herbal hops and fair finishing bitterness. Light body is very dry with crisp carbonation. Tulip glass, just above fridge temp. Bottle (trade, Aug-05). Thanks, npdempse!

Sampled from bottle. Pours a cloudy, dark yellow with a thin, white head. Aroma is grassy and earthy. Flavor is well-balanced with spicy hops and subtle, fresh fruits (citrus and apple). Light to medium-bodied, moderately carbonated and very refreshing. Great for Summer, as advertised.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
The bottle poured a light gold slightly cloudy beer with a medium fizzy white head that lasted a while but not very long and left little lacing on the glass. The aroma was a delicate combination of sweet fruit, biscuit and subtle hops. The body light with lively carbonation and a slightly dry texture. The flavor begins with a subtle, clean fruitiness. The middle is taken over by the sweet maltiness while the finish is taken over by a mild hop bitterness.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear light golden pour with short white head. Nice lacing as it went down. Aroma lacked some substance, but what was there was quite pleasant... light fruity hops and some bready malt. Well-carbonated in the mouthfeel and crisp. Flavor picked up some bright floral and citrus hop bite as well as a light-medium bready malt backbone. Quite tasty and refreshing.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours clear golden with a thin white head. Quite lovely. Aroma is slightly bready, with citrus, and a hint of metallic. Body is thin and carbonation is perhaps a little too high. Accomplishes it’s purpose though. Crisp and refreshing, with assertive hops.

I guess from now on I make sure there is a wheat reference on the summer brew. Man I can’t stand kolsch. Aroma has some fruit and that’s it. All downhill from there. Slightly skunky, probably good after some hot sauce and your palate is wrecked.
